5:02 am
increasing police presence throughout the day, both inside and outside the high school. grief counselors will be available for all of the students, but still many parents are saying that they are not planning on sending their kids to school today for fear of possible more gang retaliation. now this started last friday when a 15-year-old student, miguel hernandez was stabbed to death while walking home from osbourn high school. police say it was not a random attack. they say he was specifically targeted. an 18-year-old and 17-year-old have been arrested. they've also been charged with gang participation and murder. then on seat a second stabbing, this time at the grant avenue shopping center. the victim survived, but police say the two stabbings are likely connected. now many teachers, parents and students say the fear is that the violence will continue today. here's what manassas city manager said. >> i'm not sure we can avoid

resurgence. they believe that these two stabbings are likely related to two rival hispanic gangs in the northern virginia area. now, over the past few months they've seen gang activity increase, but it really started to spill into the manassas area over the summer where we saw a few stabbings, actually a few machete attacks over the summer, but what happened on friday, that stabbing was turned into a homicide. it was a fatal stabbing. that was the very first hop side in quite some time -- homicide in quite some time that the gang violent was connected to a murder. thank you, kristin. it's four after the hour. while you slept another successful mine rescue. >> this one in china. 22 coal miners and seven rescuers were hoisted to safety this morning. they became trapped more than a day earlier when that mine shaft they were in suddenly flooded. the first team of rescuers who reach them also became trapped.
